The Farmingville Food Share is the newest chapter of Long Island Food Not Bombs. Our goals for this area are to create solidarity with the community and become a force of positive change for the residents of Farmingville.
We do this by sharing free food, clothing, books, toys and other necessities with our fellow community members.
The residents of Farmingville have been subjected to acts of violence and discrimination by hate groups that have issue with immigrants. Systemic racism in the local political structure was the cause of over 100 racially motivated housing evictions in 2005. These evictions were steered by local town officials and were solely aimed at the immigrant population.
We hope the Farmingville Food Share helps to further unite the community to overcome forms of oppression such as these.
